little notes


dear playlist,
you are kind of groovy. i'll keep you around for a while.

dear self,
always remember that love is a sign of lightness, and fear is of darkness. aim for the light.

dear jennifer lawrence,
you have officially become my new girl crush. i love how you don't take yourself too seriously, and confidently tower over the lovely peeta!!

dear readers,
you are all rockstars! just a few more away from the magic 900. hoping to hit 1,000 by the blogs one year anniversary next month. spread the word!

dear fandango,
we're in a fight right now. because of you i was unable to buy my birthday present to myself - midnight hunger games tickets. lucky for you the mister figured it all out. but this love/hate relationship continues.

dear iphone,
although i love you and always have you attached at my hip, all of these unnecessary / unwanted phone calls and emails as of late have me wanting to throw you out the window. nothing personal.

dear soar throat,
please start feeling better. you're making it hard every time i have to talk, swallow, sneeze...pretty much anything that has to do with my every day life. miserable.

dear The Bachelor,
hands down worst season yet. really wanting to skip ahead four weeks to the US Weekly cover about what went wrong. it's inevitable.

dear Seattle,
i've been thinking about you a lot lately. can't wait to be in your rain showers in just a few short months.

  1. I can't beleive you have only been blogging for a year--I am obviously a slow learner on this blogging scene ;)

    Jennifer Lawrence is my new girl crush too--she looked stunning in her gold dress.

    Hope the sore throat disappears.

  2. I'm a little late - but I JUST started the Hunger Games, so this post made me really excited to go read, haha! Can't believe you almost have 1,000 followers and it hasn't been a year - that's awesome! And Ben....stupid, stupid Ben...sigh :)

  10. I'm flying out today...so I'm with you on the "dear Seattle"!!! :) I'll say hello for you and tell your city that you're headed home soon.

    Also...something really helpful that I ask myself when I realize that I'm "emoting" or when I'm making a decision/facing a tough question...is whether anything I'm thinking or doing is motivated by fear. Because then it for sure can't be from God, He doesn't speak in fear. Stick in teh light, hon!

  20. sorry to hear you're not feeling well. hopefully you'll get better soon!!

    and I've heard the bachelor was just awful b/c he picked the worst possible person. i don't usually watch it, but the boyfriend's sister is friends with/went to high school with Ben. she told me who the winner was when the season first started so I tried to watch the first episode. that chick annoyed me so much I turned it off half-way through!!

  22. Holy cow!! 1,000 in a year! That's amazing!! Keep going, girl!
    And I *think* you can turn off your push notifications for email for certain times of the day, but I could also be totally and completely wrong on that. It's worth checking? hahaha
    Have a good day, girly!

  24. Ahhh a birthday midnight movie! How fun!! I love Jennifer Lawrence too.....she just seems so down to earth. :)

  25. Okay thank you, this season of The Bachelor was just so so so bad. Especially because the paparazzi knew everything and it was so boring and over done by the time the finale rolled around. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm starting to lose faith in that show...and that real love exists for its contestants haha.
